Yes, the fact needs to be added that two screws need to also be removed to get the cover off. One side snaps off but the other is attached with two screws.

It feels like you are “breaking” the cover, but in fact it seems to have a kind of “bending point” near the top of the cover by the exterior controls. Watch for the two screws to remove.

This was the most difficult part for me. The screws are pretty tight, I needed a larger screwdriver to get them out.

Once the screws have been removed, the bass radiator will easily lift free. Both radiators are identical. Repeat the above steps on the opposite radiator if necessary. Both radiators are identical. Repeat the above steps on the opposite radiator if necessary.
